January 15 – Today I decided on a self portrait with my girls. This afternoon I’m having a small procedure under general anaesthetic and am nervous about it. Nothing serious, and I shouldn’t be concerned. I’ve had a couple before but it’s never nice to be so out of control of what is going on and I like to be in control. So this morning I decided I wanted a nice photo of me with Alice and Lucy. Complete with straight out of the shower hair for me and bed hair and pyjamas for the girls. I don’t care that I don’t have makeup on or we didn’t dress up, it’s us! Every day us.
And it was difficult getting focus with the remote – there were many, many rejects!
Alice, our serious, complicated daughter came to me this morning with a bowl of cereal she had made for me herself. I asked her why and she said she wants me to be happy. She was so proud of herself getting up before me and making me breakfast. Seriously one of the most beautiful things I could have asked for.
